Press Release by Beth Doglio for Congress.
In the race for Congress in Washington’s 10th District, State Rep. Beth Doglio led the field in fundraising in the second quarter (April – June). Doglio outraised major opponents Marilyn Strickland and Kristine Reeves by more than $70,000 and raised more than the entire field of 8 Republicans combined.
Doglio is now the race’s overall fundraising leader, having raised $571,650 since January, without accepting corporate PAC contributions.
Doglio had by far the lowest average contribution size of major candidates at $54 per donor, demonstrating the strength and breadth of her campaign’s grassroots fundraising. With 6,094 donors making over 7,000 contributions, Doglio had more than triple the number of donors compared to her opponents Strickland and Reeves, respectively.
Holding over $357,000 in cash on hand, Doglio enters the primary race’s final stretch well positioned to build on her campaign’s growing momentum as the candidate with the strongest ability to communicate with voters as ballots arrive in homes.
